September 18, 2011 15:36

Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Salehi on Sunday told a conference in Tehran that the Arab Spring is heralding the emergence of an Islamic Middle East, PressTV reported.

Speaking at a conference on "Islamic Awakening," the Iranian foreign minister attributed the developments in the Arab world to "the unhealthy and oppressive relations between certain governments and their nations" in recent decades.

Arab uprisings, he added, are a "natural reaction" of Muslims when faced with oppressive policies of ruling regimes.
